The Carmichael Fire District was officially organized as a Volunteer force in 1942 with Mr. Donovan becoming Fire Chief. Once the original facilities were vacated, it became the first dedicated fire facility to house the growing cache of apparatus and equipment. The old restaurant became future living quarters, with the dining room becoming a dorm with six beds. It was now officially known as Fire Station 1.
